The largest cinema in the world still open with 2702 seats in the main hall. Opened in December 1932, during the Nazi occupation of France in World War II it was requisitioned and became a cinema reserved for German soldiers. But after the war, the Grand Rex returned to its former glory with many new features and innovations. In 1988, the cinema was equipped with the largest screen, called “Grand Large,” designed by Luc Heipret and opened for the screening of the French film “Le Grand Bleu,” directed by Luc Besson).

Cinema Mexico – Milano
The Cinema Mexico, at number 57 Via Savona, was founded in 1914 as a social cinema, in a neighbourhood undergoing industrial growth, where, in addition to factories and workshops, only the first Workers’ Houses built in Milan (Via Solari 40) had been built by the Società Umanitaria for nine years. It was taken over at the end of the 1970s by Antonio Sancassani, who immediately turned it into an art-house theatre, keeping the same name it already had, Mexico, and initially dedicating its programming to musical films such as Woodstock (Wadleigh, 1970), Jesus Christ Superstar (Jewison, 1973), Tommy (Russell, 1975) and Hair (Forman, 1979). With the revival, since 1981, of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Sharman, 1975) as an interactive show, in which Claudio Bisio also made his debut – and more recently Gianmarco Pozzoli, Valeria Graci and Francesco Sarcina – the Mexico has become a reference point for fans of this original cult film and one of the five official Rocky Horror Houses in the world.
